National Record: Noah Lyles, Alexandria, Virginia, 20.63 seconds

Threats To Win: Anthony Brodie, Jalen Drayden, James Flournoy, Christian Ford, Savion Hebron, Charles Lewis, Kennedy Lightner, Marcellus Moore

Analysis: Moore leads the country with his 21.09 time from Feb. 16 at the UK High School Invitational. Beyond him, his competition will yield the No. 4 (Lewis), No. 7 (Drayden), No. 10 (Lightner) and No. 13 (Hebron) sprinters at the distance. While Moore will enter as the pre-race favorite, he'll also have to perform up to his standards in order to win. Drayden is a sleeper who hasn't raced the 200m since January -- though he's already training for outdoors -- while Hebron is coming off a state title in Pennsylvania.
